One of the main functions of a local League of Women Voters unit is to educate the public on local issues and ways to participate. The League itself is nonpartisan. We do not support any political party or candidate. But we encourage all citizens/voters to participate in their precinct caucuses and the election process. Engaged citizens, who follow and try to understand the process, can make informed decisions. In the last election cycle, only about 10 percent of registered voters turned out to help decide who would be their parties' candidates.
